Flashback Friday - Sophie

Sophie was our second Basset.
We adopted her at 2 1/2 years old from rescue.
Despite being in at least two homes prior to ours, Sophie had the most wonderful love for life. She was our "happy go lucky" girl, always ready for fun. She loved everyone she met.

Her other big loves were fruits and veggies. She would "sing" her heart out for a piece of banana, strawberry or a green bean.

She was our alpha, our diva, and our court jester.
She left us for the Bridge at 12 years old and we look forward to the day when we hear her beautiful woo woo wooooooo! again.

It's My Birthday, & I'll Howl If I Want To...

...Howl if I want to, Howl if I want to. You would howl too if it happened to you.

Ok, enough singing. I'm Louise, and if you haven't figured it out yet, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!

Today is my 4th Birthday, but it's my 1st Birthday with my new food slaves. I've only been with them since May, but I really like it here. I have two doting humans and one adoring (err...sometimes annoying) adopted sister. I also have a really big yard to romp and roll in, with lots of big trees, squirrels and birds to chase, lots of good food to eat and soft comfy furniture and beds to snooze on. Sure beats roaming the streets of South Louisiana where I was found and rescued by Looziana Basset Rescue!

Mom says there will be lots of extra belly rubs today. I LIVE for belly rubs! There will also be extra good treats and maybe even some surprises!
Arooooooooo! I love Birthdays!

Flashback Friday - Shirley

This will be a weekly walk down memory lane with the dogs who have shared my life and left their paw prints on my heart.

This is Shirley, my first Basset Hound, the one who started it all. I adopted her from someone who realized they just weren't able to give her the time and attention she needed and wanted.

She loved walks through the park, car rides, her red Kong toy and her pink princess halloween costume. She had a huge vocabulary that she understood, but most of the time we just "knew" what the other was thinking without words or actions. She was my soulmate.
